Aroma Co­coon

This ninth floor spa is re­fresh­ingly un- spa like with a min­i­mal­is­tic, yet stylish dé­cor with tiny wa­ter­falls adding a calm­ing au­ral layer. The light­ing is sub­tle like the laven­der aroma waft­ing in the air in­duc­ing a deep state of re­lax­ation even be­fore the ses­sion be­ings. They have an in­door sec­tion too, but, our favourite is the ter­race with treat­ment rooms that over­look a dense green cover. You’re spoilt for choice here with caviar fa­cials, Moroc­can Rassoul wraps and a vol­canic ash treat­ment for skin pu­rifi­ca­tion.

Pevo­nia Botan­ica jars stand on the shelves hold­ing lo­tions and creams that nour­ish the skin, tempt­ing you to jump right into the ther­apy bed. We’d rec­om­mend the O Sig­na­ture Ther­apy, two hours of ab­so­lute re­lax­ation and pam­per­ing. The ther­a­pist starts with the Aro­matic Salt Glow body scrub, de­light­fully aro­matic with Ylang Ylang, tan­ger­ine and laven­der. The body is gen­tly pol­ished and pre­pared for the next round— the aro­mather­apy co­coon. In this, es­sen­tial oils soothe your senses as the ther­a­pist works on stress and fa­tigue while you drift into a sooth­ing slum­ber. You are wo­ken up only by the warm touch of the aro­matic moor mud that is said to help al­le­vi­ate fa­tigue with its vi­ta­mins, min­er­als and en­zymes. IN­SIDER’S TIP Opt for a monthly pack­age that en­ti­tles you to a fixed num­ber of mas­sages, salon treat­ments, com­pli­men­tary use of steam and health club and 20 per cent dis­counts on ex­tra spa treat­ments COST Rs 6500 on­wards AT O Ho­tel Spa, North Main Road, Kore­gaon Park COST Treat­ments start from Rs 5000 on­wards

An hour- long mas­sage and my feet feel in­stantly alive. The smells of the oils and the am­bi­ence height­ens the re­lax­ation
